TEE  ||  SIMILAR CHAMBRAY SKIRT HEREHERE and HERE  ||  FLATS  (under $30, and come in black and nude too!)
I never cared much about the Fourth of July until we moved to California. But man, this place does it right with a giant parade, lots of fun events, and fireworks on the beach. Everyone gets so into it with decorated bikes and wagons, dressing up, and everyone outside BBQing, walking to the parade, and throwing parties. It’s basically everyone’s favorite day of the year around here.
Just don’t try to park within a mile and a half of the beach, because it is bumper to bumper cars parked everywhere. People even rent out their driveways for the day cause people are willing to pay $40 just for somewhere to park.
With all that excitement, I can’t help but love it now. Even better, my sister and her family have made it their yearly tradition to come visit us over the Fourth. This year will be their third year and it’s always the best to have cousin and sister time!
But even though I like to dress in red, white and blue for the Fourth, I pick pieces that are versatile enough to wear the rest of the year. I just recently picked up these flats and will wear them all summer long, but they’re also the perfect festive piece for the holiday (they also come in black and nude though!)
This skirt is also a fun choice you could pair with a white top, or you could do white denim with a navy and white striped top and these sneakers. I also love a white and red striped top (it feels so summery!) or a navy gingham blouse, both of which would look great with blue or white denim. Or gosh, I just love this red gingham!
